Notes for Gita Chanting:

Please remember to bring an ID that indicates your date of birth when you come for the competitions.

During the preliminary rounds of the chanting competition, when a participant is called upon to chant before our distinguished judges, only the parents, grandparents or teachers of the student will be allowed to be present. This arrangement allows our judges to offer specific and highly useful feedback to the participant for his/her improvement without worry about how other participants might view his/her chanting.

On the day of the competitions, besides those who participate in the competition, we also invite anyone interested in Gita Chanting to join us for some "non-competitive" chanting. This means, that you are welcome to chant slokas from Chapter 11, while reading from the Gita book. Our judges will be happy to assist you and provide you with feedback.
